Everyone can appreciate the power of Woodwick Candles. From the gentle glow of the flame at the top of the wick to the mystery of the magical scents that seem to come from that pool of melting wax, they are intriguing and romantic accents to any home.
What if you were told there is a way to combine the mystique of a candle with the sounds and smells of wood crackling in an open fire? Does that sound too good to be true? This is exactly what you can do as soon as you start burning wood wick candles.
If you haven’t heard of them, that’s alright, woodwick candles are a newer style of candle on the market. Instead of the cotton wick you are accustomed to seeing coming out of the center of candles, wood wick candles have just what the name says, a wick made out of wood. At first glance, you may think someone has put a small stick in the middle of a beautiful candle. That small stick is your new wick.
Here are a few benefits of woodwick candles:
When the wood burns, it will remind you of days in front of the fireplace or around the campfire. You will hear that old familiar crackling sound as the flame breaks apart the pieces of the wood that make up the candlewick candles.
Second is the scent. Even without any scent in the candle, the wood wick will give off a scent of it’s own. It’s a light wood-burning scent. It’s that same scent that may linger out of your fireplace, or that is sticking in the air at the campsite, the morning after you sat around a fire all night, toasting marshmallows and singing a few songs.
Both of these features add a great amount of ambiance and an air of the olden days to your candle burning experience.
Another benefit of wood wick candles is their long life. Woodwick candles can last 150 hours or more, depending on the size of the candle. That can translate to many romantic nights of sitting around a faux fireplace.
It is important to note that the flame from wood wick candles can get higher than regular candlewick flames. This may be part of the reason that woodwick candles come in jars; it is a safety measure. While this looks lovely in the fireplace, if you are putting wood wick candles on a counter area of your home, you should take a careful look around to make sure there is nothing nearby that can be damaged by a leaping flame.
When you want to up the impact of woodwick candles, you can add scents into the mix. While you already have the scent of burning wood coming from the candle, and for many people that is enough, if the candle itself is scented, that will add another layer of scent. By choosing a scent that brings back memories or other favorite smells, it can be a complete treat for your olfactory senses.
Whether it’s a cold winter day, or the middle of the summer, you can still create a romantic winter getaway in your home by putting a series of wood wick candles in the fireplace. Light them up, turn down the lights and reminisce. Once you light them up, you will have the soft, flickering glow of fire combined with the crackling sound of burning wood, and even a little bit of the scent that goes with the wood burning. If you really want to do it right, look for appropriate winter-theme candles such as Christmas Tree or Bourbon Pumpkin Cake.
